CFP: Teaching Video Games; SW/TX PCA/ACA (11/15/11; 2/8-11/12)

Monday, September 19, 2011 - 9:57pm
Shelley S. Rees

Seeking presentations for the "Pedagogy" section of the 2012 conference of the SW/TX PCA/ACA on the subject of teaching video games as primary texts. Many instructors have begun using video games as teaching tools, but recent developments in video game theory allow for interpretation and analysis of these texts as texts, not merely as vehicles for tangential applications.

Possible topics for this session include but are not limited to: Strategies for teaching a particular game; Teaching gaming theory; Ludology and pedagogy; Convincing your department/institution to support gaming studies.

Please submit 300-word proposals as Word attachments to Shelley S. Rees at srees@usao.edu by 15 November 2011.

Postcolonial and Contemporary Irish Literature and Poetry

updated: 
Monday, September 19, 2011 - 8:45pm
Western Illinois University's English Graduate Student Organization (EGO) conference

This panel seeks to explore the various modes of navigating the often complicated relationship between the individual and the community, between private and public, in postcolonial and contemporary Irish literature and poetry. How does Ireland's particular brand of nationalism and postcolonial history allow the individual to delineate his or her own relationship with the larger community? For instance, how does the secret, an object fraught with difficulty in light of Ireland's history of censorship and secret societies, navigate these borders of private and public? Or, how does the use of humor mitigate, or facilitate, power struggles between these borders?
